CLEAN COMFORT WORKS WITH MOST HVAC SYSTEMS

PUTTING THE PUZZLE OF YOUR HEATING & COOLING SYSTEM TOGETHER

CENTRAL AIR

CONDITIONING SYSTEM:

 

The typical central air conditioning system is a split system, with an outdoor air conditioning, or "compressor bearing unit," and an indoor coil, which is usually installed on top of the furnace in the home.

CENTRAL

HEATING SYSTEM:

 

During warmer months, the blower inside a furnace continues to circulate return air throughout the home--only this time, the return air has been cooled by being blown over the indoor coil portion of the home's split-system air conditioning system. The evaporator coil is typically installed downstream of the furnace.

HVAC INDOOR

AIR QUALITY:

PACKAGED

AIR SYSTEM:

 

Packaged units are all-in-one systems that supply both cooling and heating equipment in one "package."

These units sit on the ground or rooftop outside of your home or business.

All information provided is for illustrative purposes only. Before purchasing a Clean Comfort product or system, read important information about its operation and performance that is available through your installer.

How a packaged system works

FACTS:

 

Packaged units are all-in-one systems that supply both cooling and heating equipment in one "package."

 

These units sit on the ground or rooftop outside of your home or business.

 

Packaged units come in three forms:

 

Packaged heat pumps offer heating and cooling using heat pump technology.

 

Packaged air conditioners cool your home and can heat it as well, using electrical strip heat.

 

Packaged gas-electric units offer all-in-one air conditioning and natural gas-powered furnace performance.

 

 

 

 

 

FACTS:

 

A furnace works to keep a home warm in the winter and plays a critical part in the operation of an air conditioning system.

 

Furnaces produce heat through the combustion of natural gas in the furnace's burner. The heat produced from this process then passes through a heat exchanger. Air from your home's return air ducts is blown over the heat exchanger, thus warming the air.

 

The furnace's blower then blows the warmed air into the duct work, which carries and disperses the warmed air throughout the home.

 

During warmer months, the blower inside a furnace continues to circulate return air throughout the home--only this time, the return air has been cooled by being blown over the indoor coil portion of the home's split-system air conditioning system. The evaporator coil is typically installed downstream of the furnace.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FACTS:

 

The typical central air conditioning system is a split system, with an outdoor air conditioning, or "compressor bearing unit" and an indoor coil, which is usually installed on top of the furnace in the home.

 

Using electricity as its power source, the compressor pumps refrigerant through the system to gather heat and moisture from indoors and remove it from the home.

 

Heat and moisture are removed from the home when warm air from inside the home is blown over the cooled indoor coil. The heat in the air transfers to the coil, thereby "cooling" the air.

 

The heat that has transferred to the coil is then "pumped" to the exterior of the home, while the cooled air is pumped back inside, helping to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.

 

Central air conditioning can also be provided through a package unit or a heat pump.
